Where: Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee, WI
When: Friday, December 6, 8:30 PM. ET.
The Milwaukee Bucks will be going for their 14th consecutive win when they take on the Los Angeles Clippers in a potential NBA Finals matchup on Friday night.
Clippers Going For 10th Win In 11 GamesThe Bucks are the hottest team in the league right now, but the Clippers aren’t too far behind, winning nine of their last 10 games. They will be going for their third win in a row and 10th win in their last 11 games as they try to snap their two-game losing streak to the Bucks.
In their first meeting of the season, Kawhi Leonard did not play because of “load management,” and Paul George was still recovering from offseason shoulder injury. With both players expected to be in the lineup on Friday, the Clippers are confident they can snap Milwaukee’s winning streak.
Los Angeles has played well offensively, averaging 115.5 points per game, which is fifth in the league. The team is shooting 46 percent from the field and 36 percent from three-point range. They scored 117 points against Portland in their last game and will need a better performance to keep up with the Bucks on Friday.
Montrezl Harrell led the way for the Clippers in their last game with 26 points and nine rebounds. George finished with 25 points, four rebounds, and three assists, while Patrick Patterson added 19 points and eight rebounds.
Los Angeles has also played well defensively, holding opponents to 107.8 points per game. They gave up 97 points in their last game, but they will have their hands full with the Bucks, who are scoring more than 120 points per game. If they can keep the Bucks under 110 points, they should be able to get the win.
Bucks Going For Season Sweep Of ClippersThe Bucks are playing well at the moment and have won their last 13 contests. They also won their first meeting against the Clippers this season and will try to get the season sweep of the series as well as their 14th win in a row when they play on Friday night.
